Indiana Auto Insurance Policy Requirements

Q: What is in a basic Indiana auto insurance policy?
A: When you consider purchasing an Indiana auto insurance policy, you will encounter these basic types of coverage that can be added to it:

  1. Liability Coverage
    1. Insurance companies look at property and people separately when considering damage to either. Therefore liability insurance is separated into two types:
      1. Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
      2. Property Damage Liability Coverage
    2. Indiana law requires that drivers possess liability coverage. The following is the minimum liability coverage needed in your auto insurance policy to legally drive in Indiana:
      1. 25/50/10” (Indiana’s minimum auto insurance requirement)
      2. $25,000 for the injury or death of one person.
      3. $50,000 for the injury or death of more than one person.
      4. $10,000 for the damage to property.
    3. Liability minimums are different for leased vehicles.
  2. Collision Coverage has to be added to your auto insurance policy only if your vehicle is financed (not completely paid for). If your vehicle has been paid for, then collision is a recommended but not required option on your auto insurance policy.
  3. Comprehensive Coverage, like collision coverage, is only required while your vehicle is financed. After the vehicle has been paid off, comprehensive becomes an optional part of an Indiana auto insurance policy.
  4. Medical Payments Coverage is certainly recommended, though not required, for an Indiana auto insurance policy.
  5. Uninsured (and Underinsured) Motorist Coverage for auto insurance policies in Indiana is also optional.
  6. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage is not a mandatory part of an Indiana auto insurance policy.
  7. Other Options
    1. Towing Coverage
    2. Rental Coverage
    3. Loan/Lease Gap Coverage
